Saving our environment
Eco-Freeze hydrocarbon refrigerants have an atmospheric life of less than one year with no damaging effect to the ozone layer and they don’t contribute to global warming. In addition to these important properties, Eco-Freeze products have proven to be an extremely efficient and reliable choice for most (if not all) air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
Our products are completely sustainable: they do not contain chlorine or fluorine, which are considered as the most harmful substances for the environment by the Montreal and Kyoto protocols. Our products are considered ecological as they have a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 3 and an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of Zero.
The exhaustion of our planet’s natural resources and the damage of the environment is widely discussed in society.
Companies can no longer ignore the calls for environmentally friendly business operations and are rapidly forced to make sustainable choices to minimize their harmful impact. With the obligation to save the planet’s climate for our future generations, political and grassroots pressure increases exponentially.
Eco-Freeze is ready to meet the global demand for organic hydrocarbon refrigerants and will actively contribute to save, preserve and improve our fragile ecosystem by informing and educating both the end-user of its products (consumers) and the distributors and resellers higher up the value chain.
The equipment currently used for existing refrigerants does not require any modification or alteration to be charged with Eco-Freeze refrigerants. Since no retrofitting is required, Eco-Freeze refrigerants are the perfect solution for any system that previously used gases such as CFC R12, HFC R134a, HCFC R22, R502, R11, and others.
Because of this compatibility, it’s easy for businesses to shift away from the harmful and destructive products they are using today and so they can start to downsize their environmental impact.
Decrease power consumption
Eco-Freeze organic refrigerants consume significantly less energy than their chemical counterparts in refrigeration and air-conditioning systems but also in car air-conditioning systems. This results in factual electrical energy savings of up to 40%.
- Reduced overall operating costs (increase in profits)
- Decreased compressor loads
- Extending the component service life and minimizing leakage
- Minimized consumption of fossil hydrocarbon fuel
- Ozone-friendly and ecological – sustainable but still highly performant
The safety of Eco-Freeze refrigerants is assured, provided their application complies with all relevant and applicable industry safety standards.
Eco-Freeze refrigerants have been the subject of detailed studies and analysis by various organizations including:
- INFRAS - Chennai, Puducherry, India
- SwissContact S.M.E.P. – Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka
- European Natural Refrigerants Transition Board
- Arthur D Little – Risk Assessment Study Engineers
- Granherne P/L – Risk Assessment Study Engineers
- Maclaine-Cross, I. L.., Usage and Risk of Hydrocarbon Refrigerants in Motor Cars for Australia and the United States, June 2004, International Journal of Refrigeration, Volume 27, No. 4, pages 339-345.
Conclusions of these organizations support the use of Eco-Freeze refrigerants. Scientific papers published by various organizations in Belgium, Australia, and other countries frequently attested to the efficiency and safety of hydrocarbon refrigerants across a wide range of their applications, in challenging and extremely heavy conditions.
Eco-Freeze products have a higher resistance to humidity. No acids are formed due to water and humidity. Some products are being produced using a special technology that provides optimal lubrication for new and existing compressors.
Increased heat conduction
The unique formula of Eco-Freeze hydrocarbon refrigerants produces a 30%-to-50% increase in heat conductor efficiency, compared to other refrigerants. In practice, it means that Eco-Freeze refrigerants give off heat faster and have a lower boiling point than fluorocarbon refrigerants.
For example, Coca Cola or Pepsi drinks refrigerated shelves that use Eco-Freeze refrigerant instead of HFC, chill the cans to the desired temperature approximately 15% to 30% faster. In the summertime with higher store traffic, it is a definite advantage for store owners, as well as for manufacturers of the products being sold.
The decrease in gas consumption
Eco-Freeze hydrocarbon refrigerants have a unique advantage stemming from the fact that each kilogram of our refrigerant replaces three kilograms of fluorocarbon refrigerant.
That means you only require a third of the refrigerant by weight.
This provides a big advantage and extends the service life of the equipment while simultaneously increasing its performance. Ultimately this will positively impact the financial results of your business as well.
